ADN-BSN-MN Study Option

Main page content

The ADN-BSN-MN study option is an accelerated program plan for high-achieving associate degree and diploma-prepared nurses to earn their MN degree. Applicants must be graduates of a National League for Nursing accredited program. ADN-BSN-MN students substitute two MN courses for two undergraduate nursing courses. The six credits of master’s level course work are counted as part of the 180 required undergraduate credits.

A program of study is planned that meets UW Tacoma BSN and MN graduation requirements. The BSN is awarded upon completion of the baccalaureate program. Once a baccalaureate degree is earned and the student is accepted into the UW Graduate School, the student then completes a 41-credit graduate program, rather than the standard 47-credit program.
